As a private project, "Liuwa Magic" was filmed in the Liuwa Plains, which is part of the Upper Zambezi floodplain ecosystem in the Western Province of Zambia. The short film takes the viewer to one of the most pristine and isolated regions in sub-saharan Africa, where the second largest Wildebeest migration takes place: The Liuwa Plains in Western Zambia.
Liuwa certainly is one of the most prestine and isolated regions I have ever visited. It is a truly magical place with magnificent wildlife and the most scenic landscape. With this film, we would like to share a small glimpse into this special and remote part of the world.
This film is designated a wildlife2.0 film, because it lets viewers see this special and remote part of the world as if being there first hand. No artificial voiceover or filmic dramatization distracts from the beautiful, poetic images and the spectacular wildlife that was filmed with four cameras including a special slow-motion and two time-lapse cameras. The original ambience sound is enhanced by an originally composed musical score that accentuates the varying atmosphere of the scenes and lets the viewer dive right into the scenes and forget everything else.
The Original Music was composed for this film by Fabian Schiller on behalf of Christoph Nick and Guido Möller.
